Regrets of The Dying

Bronnie Ware is an Australian nurse who works in palliative care, caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. As she worked with these people she kept hearing the same themes repeated over and over, and so she gathered their dying epiphanies into a book called The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.

No Wounds

I was in pain. The reasons aren’t important, the pain was. I had asked for help, and the response came calmly, without emotion and with great compassion. Had these words come from a fellow shaman or even some guru, I might have paused, but this was not the time for that. This insight needed to be accepted with all the reverence and respect I could muster, because it was coming directly from The Creator.

I Want

“I want” may be the most debilitating phrase in the English language. Of course, we all want things – to eat, to be safe and warm, to be cared about, to grow spiritually. But when we mix the ego into it, wanting can take on a whole other dimension. “I want to be happy,” “I want love,” or “I want abundance,” become much more than simple expressions of desire.

Coping With Life

You do not love yourself for reasons – centuries old reasons. Let’s look at life and see where those came from. The first thing that happens is that life presents you with a situation (an opportunity), to move to greater compassion. Many times you will resist doing that because it conflicts with the way you see yourself.

The Ball

Imagine a small dark ball. This is the world of your inner child. Years ago, her world was very limited. It consisted of herself, her parents, siblings and possibly grandparents. At that age, the rest of the world just isn’t that important. Although a child’s world should be one of play, fantasy and joy, many children’s worlds are unfortunately filled with pain, disappointment, judgment, criticism, emotional abandonment and rejection. And for some others, their ball can be a realm of pure hell.

What’s Next?

Change is rarely easy. It is made difficult because it means the end of what has been and adapting to a new way of being. We don’t think much about eggs that become chickens or caterpillars that turn into butterflies, because they are “natural.” I don’t know how an acorn feels when it sprouts and turns into an oak tree, but if you have given birth, you are intimately familiar with the pain of the process of creation.
